Track Name: Intro
Bring It Down!

We stand for what we believe in
We wont fall for any reason
Our voices will resound
Stand your ground, we wont back down
Track Name: Drop Out
It's Saturday October 1st 05
The cars already loaded as we set off on this 4 hour drive
To the south coast is where we're heading
We're way ahead of time on the road past Reading
And I know this is my one chance to become
All those things I never was back home
And I know this is my one chance where the past can be undone, so set me free

Stand Tall, Dont Fall
Out of place with the in crowd
Stand Tall, Dont Fall
Because the second you do this will all catch upto you

So maybe one day I could look back
On all the good times that I once had
Lets face it who am I kidding
I'm better off when im here singing
And so I said goodbye, to the best 3 years of my life

I said goodbye
To the best 3 years of my life

And everything that I expected
Was for this all to fall in place
And now one year its over, and it was nothing but a waste
If I could go back and start over
My last semester would be spent sober

Now im back home
No friends, all alone
Now im back home
Im all alone

So maybe one day I could look back
On all the good times that I once had
Lets face it who am I kidding
I'm better off when im here singing
And so I said goodbye, to the best 3 years of my life

No regrets mistakes will shape my path
Track Name: What's So 'Great' About It?
So here we are again old friends
Three close enemies all holding hands in bed
They're dressed to kill, in the most literal sense
Fake plastic smiles, and a gun against our heads
Is their idea of solving problems when they all put us in this mess

What's so great about it
Who holds the secret to our countries name
These cold shores, our prison walls
This is my Alcatraz, theres no escape

And so another blue day begins
Our betrayers meet by the river Thames
They take their seats, Big Ben strikes ten
Dismiss our problems, repeat over again
When will it stop, when will it end
How much longer can we pretend,
That everything's alright, everything is fine
They take from us but win our minds

What's so great about it
Who holds the secret to our countries name
These cold shores, our prison walls
This is my Alcatraz, theres no escape
If I could grow the wings to fly
I'd up and leave this place behind
The red, blue and gold sold our nations soul

Fear is what they teach today
We're gripped so tight that we can barely breathe
They'd cut us just to watch us bleed
Will we stand back and watch them do it?
NO!

Lets make history!

We'll change everything
Almost anything
We won't stand back, and let them take us for another ride
We won't stand back!

What's so great about it
Who holds the secret to our countries name
These cold shores, our prison walls
this is my Alcatraz, theres no escape
If I could grow the wings to fly
I'd up and leave this place behind
The red, blue and gold sold our nations soul

If I could grow the wings to fly
I'd up and leave this place behind
The red, blue and gold sold our nations soul
Track Name: Can I Interest You In A Nightcap? No Thankyou I Dont Wear Them
This situation just keeps repeating
Inspite of all the times I tried so hard
You're a disgrace, You're nothing but a waste of space
Well I guess it was never enough
Well I guess it was never enough, for you

Well here we are again, Been stuck in this before
Putting everything that matters most behind these closing doors
How much can we take and how long until we break

The ends in sight but I just can't seem to find my way
I'm pushing myself in any direction life can take
What must I do to solve this
Problem that I've found myself in

I've tried so hard to, just to prove
To you that I broke all the rules
Nothing will get in my way, from getting everything I want
You were the only one who, stopped me from holding onto
Those hopes and dreams I had inside
I wouldn't believe all your lies

How much can we take and how long until we break

The ends in sight but I just cant seem to find my way
I'm pushing myself in any direction life can take
What must I do to solve this
Problem that I've found myself in

And even though I tried my hardest
To prove to you
That i've got everything and more
That you could ever wish for

That you could wish for
Track Name: Rhubarb City
We welcome you to Rhubarb City
Don't think you're safe in this town

There's a place full of creatures at night
Disguised as your dreams under the city street lights
They will tempt you with a diamond in their eye
A crooked smile, its nothing but a lie
Please take precaution when trying to cross these tarmac oceans
There's so much danger, There's no protection from a caped crusader

I bet this is one place you've never heard of

This is the city of fallen memories
Bad luck and broken dreams
Lives tearing at the seams
So hear these words, sing them loud and clear
I'd keep a mile away from Rhubarb City my dear

Don't think you're safe in this town

So many people try to run this town down
There's no chance when you're fighting a ghost town
So many people try to make it their way
But none of them will even make it halfway
Now this is my point to prove
We'll make it through, we won't lose
From a town notorious, we'll stand victorious

This is the city of fallen memories
Bad luck and broken dreams
Lives tearing at the seams
So hear these words, sing them loud and clear
I'd keep a mile away from Rhubarb City my dear

Don't think you're safe in this town
Don't think you're safe
Track Name: When You're Made Out Of Lego (It's Hip To Be Square)
I'm just not cool enough they say
To be a part of their charade
No matter what I do, its always going to stay that way
Well ive tried my best to please them
But doesn't it stand to reason
You play the fool, they're twice as cruel and then you've broken the golden rule
I will not be defeated
I will not let them win
For all of the cut's that they leave inside, remember!
They're the ones who are trying to hide

So smile! because your a winner in the end
I'd rather be a loser any day
Because a loser's better than a fake
Well im better off anyway
Cos I know that you're never going to change you're ways
You're always going to be the same

Do I turn my back and run
Or do I stand my ground for fun
Either way my day will come and when it does
They will pay for what they've done

You're just a victim to the latest Dynamic
And you live you're life so fucking over dramatic
And I know thay you will, never change you're way's
Because im the type of guy who spends time on his own
Armed with a voice and prepared to unload
In verses and lines ill rip the stars from your eyes
And i dont know if you've heard? but i think you're a joke

So step the fuck up!
You will never break me
You don't win in this story
You will never break me
You dont win in this story
Because I know that you're never going to change

Do I turn my back and run
Or do I stand my ground for fun
Either way my day will come and when it does
They will pay for what they've done

You're just a victim to the latest Dynamic
And you live you're life so fucking over dramatic
And I know thay you will, never change you're way's
Because im the type of guy who spends time on his own
Armed with a voice and prepared to unload
In verses and lines ill rip the stars from your eyes
And I dont know if you've heard? but I think you're a joke

We are the ones who are stronger
We find a way to overcome
It's our time to
It's our time to put an end

To all the Heartache!
